As soon as one sets their eyes on this stunning character cottage, it’s pretty exterior and beautiful setting capture your heart. The quintessential English country cottage, this idyllic, three bedroom detached dwelling is the epitome of the chocolate box home, and couldn’t look any more delightful if it had roses around the door and a white picket fence. Positively brimming with charm, the property dates to 1850 and enjoys commanding views whilst standing proudly amidst its own stunning grounds, including private landscaped gardens and fabulous grazing land (circa three acres) for anyone searching for a home to accommodate their love of all things equine.
The home is nestled in a lovely position on a quiet country lane with gorgeous open views over the surrounding countryside which provides no shortage of picturesque strolls to enjoy in those long summer evenings. When one is looking for something a little more vibrant, the pretty market town of Ormskirk is only a short drive away, with its cosmopolitan blend of boutique shops, trendy bars and eateries, perfect for those who enjoy a hectic social calendar and Liverpool city centre is easily commutable within half an hour. Highly respected schools at both primary and secondary level, coupled with excellent transport links via rail and road, are the ultimate endorsements for an area which has much to offer the family unit.
The country-style ambiance of the home is enhanced with accents such as original beams, exposed stone, a Belfast sink, gorgeous fireplaces and tasteful decor throughout. The property offers an excellent floor plan which extends to in excess of 1740 square feet and from the first step across the threshold it warms the soul with its inviting ambiance, the characterful dining hall greeting you at the door with its beautiful beamed ceiling and cosy wood burning stove. From here there is access to a light and bright lounge with dual aspects, a study/bedroom 3 and the inner hallway which in turn gives way to the kitchen, a snug, and a downstairs bathroom comprising wash hand basin, wc and bath with shower over. To the rear of the property is a handy utility room, a lovely garden room and a further downstairs WC. On the first floor there are two additional bedrooms both of which are doubles and a modern three piece shower room.
Externally, the sublime plot is approached by a driveway that gives access to a detached double garage with separate gated access from the lane to the three acre paddock. There is a very practical brick built outbuilding to the rear and the formal gardens are simply heavenly, having swathes of manicured lawns against a fabulous rural backdrop with beautiful planted borders, a feature garden pond and numerous patio areas to enjoy the privacy in peace and quiet - perfect for those looking for a taste of the good life! The paddock adjoins the gardens but is completely enclosed and perfect for a pony or two with a wonderful wild meadow that creates a romantic setting in which to relax with a relaxing glass of Champagne during those long Summer evenings.
Hollin House Green is set in a rare and privileged location where happy memories, a rural lifestyle and the opportunity to breathe the sustaining elixir of the great outdoors awaits you.
